HOW MANY PLAYERS ON A TEAM?
Teams must have a minimum of 4 players and a maximum of 9 players on their roster. There will be no exceptions on team player allowances.
CAN I REGISTER AS AN INDIVIDUAL OR MUST I HAVE AN ASSEMBLED TEAM?
If you are unable to assemble your own team and still wish to participate in Street Jam we are HAPPY to accommodate you! When completing the registration process, you just register only one individual and our event organizers will ensure you are assigned to a team of the correct age division. You will be required to pay the base fee of $50.00 per player, once you are placed on an assigned team, you will be committed to play on that specific team. However, if at a later time, you decide to sign up with a team we will put your registration fee towards the team that you have organized. We want to give everyone the opportunity to have a chance in taking part in such a fun filled weekend so we will do what ever we possibly can to get you in!
Please Note: In the unlikely event we are unable to place you on a team we will FULLY refund your registration fee, but we will try to avoid that at all costs, and include everyone through team placement.
HOW MANY PLAYERS IN THE GAME?
There are three (3) ‘out’ players and 1 goalie on the street rink at all times. Team substitutes are eligible to play in each game, all changes are to be made on the fly.
HOW MANY GAMES ARE WE GUARANTEED TO PLAY?
All teams will be guaranteed 3 games, beginning on Saturday morning at 8:00am. Once all games have been completed on Saturday, teams are “seeded” for Playoffs which will take place on Sunday. The total number of teams advancing to Playoffs will be dependent upon the number of teams in each division. We will try to accommodate as many teams into the Playoffs as possible, once we take timing and space in to consideration.
We anticipate having Playoff schedules posted on our website as well as our Facebook page Saturday evening within two (2) hours after all division games have been completed.
You are out once you lose in the single elimination playoff round.
WHAT ARE THE DIVISION OF STREET JAM?
Street Jam follows the standard Hockey Canada divisions. We will be dividing teams categorized by U7, U9, U11, U13, U15, and U18 age players. Additionally, we have U21, Senior and Veteran (40+) divisions. Players will be responsible for making sure that all birthdates are entered accurately at the time of registration. We reserve the right to check ID at any time throughout the event, players and/or their teams will be disqualified if they submit false information or are not carrying an ID appropriate with their division.
|Division||Date of Birth|
|U18||2005, 2006, 2007|
|U21||2002, 2003, 2004|
|Senior||2001 or earlier|
|Veteran (40+)||1982 or earlier|
Players can play in an older division (U7 play in U9), however players cannot play down a division (U9 play in U7)
HOW ARE DIVISIONS CATEGORIZED?
Due to the fact that teams are self registered, we expect male teams to choose the appropriate Division based on skill and experience. As a general rule, here are our guidelines:
|A||For those players who do not want, or are not ready for, the intense competition of advanced level hockey/street hockey;|
|AA||Mid level skills, combination of both house league and all-star players;|
|AAA||Most competitive division, players tend to be more skilled and play at an advanced or all-star level|

WILL I BE REFUNDED FOR PLAYERS WHO BACK OUT?
We have a no-refund policy for individuals on an assigned team or who have registered as a sole participant. Our tournament is based on the number of teams who register, and our organizers make venue commitments based on those numbers. Therefore, we will not be granting refunds after you have completed registration. However, if you have a player who no longer can participate you can place a new plyer in their spot up until your first game. We strongly advise you do not register until you have a solid committed team.
